Clark To Debut Against Kings

Head Coach Mike Yeo said that defenseman Brett Clark will make his Wild debut tonight against the Kings. Yeo said that he expects the 36-year-old blueliner to be a “puck mover” and bring a stable veteran presence to the blue line. Clark will replace Justin Falk, who will be a healthy scratch. Nate Prosser will be the other defenseman scratched tonight.

“He’s a veteran guy who knows how to play with and without the puck,” Yeo said on Clark. “Judging his personality in the short time he’s been here, he seems like he’s composed and brings that veteran element to the back end.”

As expected, Niklas Backstrom will start in net. He didn’t travel with the team yesterday to Dallas.

With the club playing in back-to-back nights, Yeo said that he expects a big effort from the fourth line of Zenon Konopka, Mike Rupp and Torrey Mitchell. He wants the line to play a ‘hard game’ against the Kings.

“These guys are driven and going the right way,” Yeo said on the team. “You need guys that are ready to play a heavy game.”

UPDATE: Torrey Mitchell is out of tonight’s game with an undisclosed illness.
